When cars become capable of self driving, drivers will still have to remain alert and be ready to take control. In this episode of SAE Eye on Engineering, Editor-in-Chief Lindsay Brooke looks at upcoming driver monitoring technology. SAE Eye on Engineering also airs Monday mornings on WJR 760 AM Detroit's Paul W. Smith Show.
